Job Description

Inktrap is an independent product design and development team based in London, with clients ranging from tech startups to multinational businesses. We thrive on solving complex problems in elegant and practical ways.

We pride ourselves on our collaborative process, supportive environment and practical approach. Our team is friendly, motivated and cares deeply about delivering quality products. Everyone in the studio contributes to developing our process and has a say in how we work.

About the role

We're looking for a Product Designer to join our team and deliver beautiful and practical UX and UI designs.

Here's some examples of the sort of thing you'd be doing day-to-day:

  • Designing beautiful and accessible user interfaces for web and mobile apps
  • Drawing up wireframes and user flows, and creating interactive prototypes to test them with target users
  • Helping to plan and execute user interviews to understand how we can best meet user needs
  • Collaborating with developers to ensure that designs are implemented to a high standard
  • Working directly with clients to understand business requirements and help shape the future of their products
  • Presenting things you've learned back to the team as part of our weekly team chat

What we're looking for

We hire people who are considerate, enthusiastic, and really care about having a positive impact on the people who use the products we design and build.

For this role we're looking for people who:

  • Have practical experience designing websites or apps (e.g. past role, placement year, personal projects, or freelance work)
  • Have a solid understanding of design fundamentals through their work
  • Communicate clearly and efficiently, both on calls and in writing
  • Care deeply about producing designs that have a positive impact on users
  • Have tons of initiative and a good eye for detail
  • Show enthusiasm for learning new skills and techniques

This role would be a good match for a recent graduate from a digital design or media degree programme, or someone looking to build on their recent experience designing digital products.

We know our team isn't diverse enough at the moment and we're actively trying to change this. No matter who you are, if you're a good fit for the role we want to hear from you.

Team and benefits

Our team is friendly, motivated and cares deeply about producing quality products. Everyone in the studio contributes to developing our process and has a say in how we work.

We're a calm and collaborative company, and we value our team. Our benefits include:

  • £27-34k, dependent on your level in our progression framework, with reviews every 6 months so pay increases inline with your skills
  • Varied work on a range of interesting projects and services
  • Frequent exciting team socials and activities
  • 27 days holiday each year (plus bank holidays)
  • Hybrid working (it’s up to you how you split your time between home and our London studio)
  • Flexible working hours (most of the team do 9:30am to 6pm)
  • Flat structure with no ego, and lots of autonomy
  • No unpaid overtime, ever
  • Annual £500 budget for conferences, books and other resources to help develop your skills
  • Up-to-date Mac with admin rights and any other equipment you need
  • Support through regular 1:1 mentoring sessions with a more senior team member
  • Carbon footprint offsetting with Ecologi for all your personal and work related emissions
  • ‘Sandwich Day’ - free lunch on Fridays in the studio
